Water Lily

Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Dont we just love the water lily? Water lilies are recognized around the world as having deep spiritual significance.

Also associated with lotuses, water lilies have their roots firmly entrenched in the muck and the mud, however their beautiful, pristine blossoms float above it all. Water lilies are the nymphs of the pond, known for the beauty and grace of their blooms. Because they close every night as the light fades only to open the following day, they can be viewed as symbols of rebirth and second chances. Dreams of water lilies, therefore, refer to revitalization after a time of trial.

Detailed dream meaning

Dreams of water lilies signify an evolution from a negative starting point to a positive end. The flower represents rebirth and a willingness to try again while the leaf or pad of the plant represents a solid place from which to gain stability when the world feels as though it is constantly shifting and changing.

To dream of being a water, lily suggests that you have had a difficult past which has had the positive impact of making you into a stronger, more resilient, better person. It also implies that you are still connected in some way to this past and, therefore, must be willing to continue to make an effort to grow.

Dreaming of planting water lilies implies that you are actively delving into emotionally charged memories in order to achieve closure. Contrarily, dreams in which you simply look at water lilies from a distance indicate that you take a superficial approach to dealing with relationships and deliberately blind yourself to unpleasant truths that may be lurking just below the surface. To dream of looking at a painting of water, lilies signify that your attempt to change your life is not an earnest one and the results will be flat and one-dimensional. In other words, you are making the motions of change, but you are not sincere.

Frogs in a dream represent a fully realized metamorphosis so to dream about seeing frogs on a lily pad denotes your ability to see who you will become, warts and all, if you have the opportunity to find a safe place to reflect on what you need to do to get there.
